On Thursday, March 22nd the Leech Lake Tribal College STEM department is hosting the 4th annual Across the Universe event. Across the Universe opens a window into the world of science, technology, engineering and math and its many interesting aspects.
The entire community is invited to this showcase that will expose the fun, wonderful power of science with hands-on activities and demonstrations from students, community members and professional educators. Although many of the activities are geared toward high-school students, this free event is for the whole family to experience together.
Participants will enjoy amazing demonstrations from the robotics teams from Cass Lake-Bena High school, and have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience making string and rope from basswood and nettles with Nate Johnson and Emily Derke. Learn how to code a drone with students from Bemidji State University or create slime that changes color with temperature!
Two delightful science programs by the Headwaters Science Center will provide participants a close-up view of live raptors or a demonstration on the unique properties of water. Families and friends will enjoy a spectacular evening filled with scientific demonstrations and hands-on activities for all.
Across the Universe takes place on Thursday, March 22nd from 4:30-8pm at Leech Lake Tribal Colleges’ Campus at 6945 Little Wolf Road NW, Cass Lake, MN. This event is free and open to the public. A pasta feast will be served at 5pm.
